What prompted you to book your tour?
My husband and I usually travel independently, but after seeing the Inspiring Japan tour advertised in our Adelaide Sunday newspaper, we knew this trip ticked all the boxes for us. With accommodation, breakfasts and included sightseeing, it was value for money that would be hard to replicate travelling on your own.

Did your expectations meet reality? 
Traversing three of Japan's islands, the tour encompasses everything you expect to see in this magnificent and welcoming country. The must-see places such as Mount Fuji, Hiroshima and the Bamboo Forest are of course, highlights, but the little known sights such as the picture-postcard village of Shirakawa-go, the hot springs town of Beppu, and Miyajima Island, are the real heroes you may miss if not on tour. Nagasaki with its beautiful harbour was also an unexpected treat.

What were the highlights of this tour for you? 
Our tour guide Maru, was passionate and knowledgeable on all aspects of Japanese culture and provided an eloquent and extremely interesting commentary throughout. He also patiently answered all our questions on any subject.

What do you say to those pondering whether or not to book this tour?  
For those still in the thinking stage, this tour is wonderful for immersing yourself in the culture of Japan. Put the kimono on for the group dinner, ride the bullet train, get naked in the onsen, taste the sakè, and go to the optional dinners, you won't regret it!
